Do you know about the College Football Belt? It's good, clean Internet fun that tracks the top team in college football if college football worked like a combat sport, where the team who beats the last title-holder immediately takes the crown. It goes all the way back to 1972, when the UCLA Bruins beat the defending champion Nebraska Cornhuskers to open the season.
A bunch of teams beat a bunch of teams, and here we are. The Clemson Tigers had retained the belt since beating the Auburn Tigers, giving them an impressive six-week run. But the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets now have their first belt reign ever. Paul Johnson is 1-0 in belt games, topping George O'Leary, Bill Lewis, Pepper Rodgers and Bill Fulcher, each of whom went 0-1.
A tough defense lies ahead, with the Virginia Tech Hokies on the way. The Hokies have an 0-9 all-time record in belt contests, including a loss to Clemson earlier this season.
This is all so very important.
